Streaming giant Netflix is to air a new documentary about the “rise, fall and resurrection” of sprinting great Mark Cavendish.

The British rider will star in the film that follows the sprinter from his triumphant 2016 Tour de France campaign where he won four stages before going on to claim a silver medal at the Olympics, through to his 2021 Tour ride where he won another four to equal the stage win record set by Eddy Merckx.

Having trained as a journalist at Cardiff University I spent eight years working as a business journalist covering everything from social care, to construction to the legal profession and riding my bike at the weekends and evenings. When a friend told me Cycling Weekly was looking for a news editor, I didn't give myself much chance of landing the role, but I did and joined the publication in 2016. Since then I've covered Tours de France, World Championships, hour records, spring classics and races in the Middle East. On top of that, since becoming features editor in 2017 I've also been lucky enough to get myself sent to ride my bike for magazine pieces in Portugal and across the UK. They've all been fun but I have an enduring passion for covering the national track championships. It might not be the most glamorous but it's got a real community feeling to it.
